KIRKUS REVIEW

This is not a book that is apt to get much distribution through regular trade channels, but public libraries may have a place for it. Primarily, the interest will be among those whose training or enthusiasm lies along the lines of the rules and principles of strategy, those who have the basic professional knowledge and want to bring it up to date. Written for the layman, in so far as clarity is concerned, but limited in its subject matter. Covers principles of strategy and tactics, definition of terms, international law, details of plans for moving an army, for preparation for battle, for offensive and scientific defense, and the various branches of service, infantry, cavalry, artillery, mechanized units, aviation, etc.
